The school suspended Bowen following the FBI's announcement of its far-reaching investigation into corruption and bribery allegations at several major universities. The scandal also led to the dismissals of legendary basketball coach Rick Pitino, and his boss, athletic director Tom Jurich.

South Carolina made a surprise run to the Final Four last year, and is off to a 10-5 start (1-2 SEC) this season. Kentucky plays at USC on Jan. 16, but the Gamecocks do not make a return trip to Lexington this season. 

"I'm really excited to get an opportunity like this with a terrific coach like Frank Martin and a program like South Carolina," Bowen told ESPN.
